    Because of my crazed obsession of working on my car till the wee hours of the morning...I literally had about 3.5hrs of sleep last night. I was a mess at work and was falling asleep on the phone w/my girl earlier. I am kinda awake now, a tad groggy, but conscious.

    If you were in my situation-would u still go to the gym today?

    I try to go 7 days a week, just because I can since gym is soo close to me and its such a habit not that when i am forced to skip a day, i feel super guilty.

    **EDIT: I would do elliptical for 30-40min, no lifting.

    you're not going to get much benefit until you actually rest and let your body recuperate, so why bother
